Allow me to be the first to say it:
The most entertaining Super Bowl I've ever seen. Let us count the ways:
There were not one, but two last minute drives.
There was a saftey.
Joe Namath and Suzie Kolber were on the same field in the same city for an entire weekend.
There was a 100 yard interception return for a touchdown by a 280 pound defensive back
There was a spectacular touchdown catch to make it a game by Larry Fitzgerald, followed with another LF TD catch and run right down the middle.
Less than two minutes later there was an even more spectacular touchdown catch by Santonio Holmes, who I would personally like to thank for taking the regular season off and rotting on my fantasy bench so he could be fresh for the playoffs.
There was a half time show that tilted between 'Yeah, fucking BRUCE!!!!' and 'why is there a referee throwing a flag during halftime?'
We had great games from BOTH starting quarterbacks.
We had record breaking games from James Harrison (longest play in Super Bowl history) and Larry Fitzgerald (most receiving yards in playoff history)
We discovered Kurt Warner can shower and dress in a suit in less than 20 minutes. I'm assuming he actually showered.
We had the introduction of a new hottie on the sidelines in Alex Flanagan (although she was a bit dry).
We now have the first 6 Super Bowl team in NFL history.
There were questionable calls.
There were irresponsible penalties.
And to top everything off, we know have one of the most crushing defeats for any team in any sport in history. This may actually rank higher than the Red Sox - Mets Game 6. Maybe. Just brutal and my apologies to Cardinal fans everywhere.
The only negative I see in this entire night are those godawful championship hats the Steelers had to wear during their celebration. Harrison, you'll notice, immediately turned it backwards for his interviews.
I'll take on the ads Monday.
